Rest in Peace Seamus. Gentleman.

Rest in Peace Seamus. Gentleman.

This morning we awoke to the awful news that we knew was coming. Seamus Dooley has passed away.

To call him Mr. GAA is unfair, he was much more than that. He was a player, a referee, a delegate, an Officer. He was in charge of the pitch, he was in charge of the refreshments. He was the liaison with Manhattan College where he had the ear of all the coaches all the way to the President's office. He was the Chairperson of the New York GAA when the field was developed. He was our Central Council Delegate who had a wonderful relationship with Croke Park. Most of all, he was our friend.

To his daughter Amanda, her husband Mike and their children, to all of his relatives we issue our heartfelt sympathy. Today you have lost someone very special, someone who at any time would give you the shirt from his back, someone who always sided with the underdog and someone who wore his heart on his sleeve. From a young age Seamus raised Amanda alone after the tragic too young passing of his wife Genie and she was always the light of his life.

The Monaghan Club have also today lost their leading light. A delegate for decades who passionately argued and fought every battle on their behalf, whether right or wrong. Again, he held every role right up to President of the Club. He also was a lifelong supporter of the Monaghan County team and his home club Killaney.

This morning there are many Immigrants to New York who will remember Seamus and what he did for them, even if it was just a kind word. It was in his nature to help everyone and he got countless jobs, apartments and contacts for many young people who would not have had anyone to turn to. It did not matter where you were from, although being from Monaghan was a help.

Seamus was one of life’s great characters whose very presence enlivened every gathering he was a part of. His hearty laugh, his booming voice, his very presence will be remembered forever by all who knew him. A natural storyteller, with a great wit who was not above a little exaggeration every now and then.

Many stories will be told over the next few days about the legend that was Seamus Dooley, some true, some not so true and some outrageous ones.

Today, it seems appropriate that it is a dull grey day. When Seamus was around the world was a brighter better place and it was always great to see him come in to wherever you were, often with the Irish newspapers under his arm and a smile and a word for everyone in the room, looking to take part in a game of cards or argue a square ball against Monaghan from 1979…

We will miss him deeply and he will be in our hearts forever.

Rest in peace our friend.

NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade announces 2021 Grand Marshal.

JAMES T. CALLAHAN is the General President of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), a union that represents over 400,000 men and women in the United States and Canada.

NYC ST. PATRICK’S PARADE BOARD MAKES A HISTORICAL MOVE

In these extraordinary times of a worldwide pandemic, the board of directors of the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade held a historical meeting Monday September 14th and reaffirmed James T. Callahan as Grand Marshal for the 2021 Parade. At the meeting, Sean Lane, Chairman made the motion to reaffirm the 2020 Grand Marshal James Callahan as the 2021 Grand Marshal, a motion that was immediately and enthusiastically seconded by Parade Board member Brendan Benn, who is also a representative of Local 30 IUOE. The motion received the overwhelming support from all board members, and passed unanimously.

“It was very disappointing that we were unable to have a normal parade this year due to Covid-19, however we hope that with an effective vaccine we will able to have some type of Parade in 2021, so for that reason it was very important that Jim Callahan was reaffirmed as the Grand Marshal”, said Sean Lane. “I am delighted with the Boards enthusiasm that Jim remains the Grand Marshal for next year”. “In our 260-year history, this maybe the first time that circumstance warranted such a move by the board”.

“I am delighted to serve”, said Jim Callahan when he heard the news. “I again thank the Board for this great honor. I am so proud to be part of this great and truly iconic Parade, and to be selected twice to be the Grand Marshal is truly magical”. I want to congratulate all the Aides to the Grand Marshal who will join me in this great honor next year", he added. “To the 400,000 men and women that I represent, I want you to know; I am so proud of you and the work that you have done and continue to do on the front lines during this pandemic. I also want you all to know, "next year will be better", and there will be no better place to start to celebrate the end of the pandemic, than in New York with the St Patrick’s Day Parade. I look forward to seeing you in 2021, in New York, when we all can hopefully celebrate the end of the pandemic, together and on Fifth Avenue”
